Strategic Analysis of Technologies for Future Truck Engines 2000-01-3458

The application of statistical analysis methods and simulation techniques through the concept stages of a truck engine development process, in order to assist with decision making, is reported in this paper. Aspects of single cylinder engine, combustion system development and the subsequent use of modelling and simulation, to predict multi-cylinder engine behaviour, is described. Finally, the inclusion of vehicle commercial and operational information is shown to provide insights into the likely mix of technical strategies for future truck engines in the UK vehicle parc.
It is seen that, in the near future especially in Europe, the likely solution for truck engines will be a mix of EGR and SCR techniques both of which will include the use of particulate filtration. However, the extent of the commercially viable application of this strategy is very dependent upon likely future market prices for the various aftertreatment and fuel technologies.
